Getting to the Wellington Ferry Terminal

There are a number of ways to get to the Wellington Interislander terminal.

Shuttle Bus

Interislander provides a free shuttle bus to the Interislander terminal that leaves from the bus stop next to Platform 9 at the Wellington Railway Station, at the heart of Wellington’s CBD. The shuttle bus operates between 08:00 and 19:30 (8am to 7.30pm) and leaves Wellington Railway Station 50 minutes before each scheduled passenger departure during this period.

Bus from backpackers

In association with Base and YHA Backpackers, Interislander also offers a simple, direct and convenient backpacker bus service to the Wellington terminal, at the small cost of $3.  Bus tickets must be pre-purchased from the Backpackers. Please note that the shuttle only operates for the 8:30am Kaitaki sailing ex Wellington.


Taxis provide a convenient option to get you directly to the departure terminal.


For those on foot, the terminal is 40 minutes' brisk walk along Aotea Quay.  However, for your safety and comfort, we recommend one of the above options.
